Miami Dolphin Jonathon Amaya Arrested For Choking Out Cab Driver

In Dumb Baller News, did you hear about what happened to Jonathon Amaya yesterday? I’m almost certain alcohol was a factor — but that is not an excuse.

According to the Miami Beach PD, 24-year-old Amaya — 6’2″, 185 lbs — had given the cab driver $100 to take him outside the cab driver’s usual area … but during the ride, the NFL player got “aggressive.”

The taxi driver told police he tried to kick Amaya out of the cab — and even offered to return the $100 — but Amaya refused. Instead, the cab driver claims, Amaya “leaned forward and wrapped his hands around his neck and started choking him.”

When cops arrived to the scene, Amaya was still inside the cab. The driver told the responding officers, “This man is trying to kill me.”

Cops say the cab driver did not have any visible injuries.

Amaya was eventually “escorted” out of the vehicle and arrested for battery just after 4AM.

I commend Amaya for taking a cab though. Baby steps.
